If you could be or do anything in life, what would it be? Might you open a cafe by the sea, live in a chalet in the mountains, direct a summer camp in the Adirondacks, trade on Wall Street, lobby on Capitol Hill, operate desert camel treks in the Mid-East, or offer walking tours in Barcelona? What would really fly your kite? What dreams have you never given up on?
Given my own eclectic bent in life, I’m not sure that I’ve ever found a career or geographical setting that didn’t offer some benefits. If it’s not illegal, immoral, or unethical, I figure it’s kosher.
There are life coaches who argue that we are all called to One Big Thing. I would tend to agree that specialization is all the rage these days. The Renaissance Man or Woman might be a thing of the past, unfortunately. While I’ve always believed in being well-rounded, it could be difficult to argue that skimming the surface in several areas outweighs being a person of depth in one speciality.
Have you ever thought of going for it? Changing gears in life and heading into a new horizon?
